2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Fuel Economy Update for March

April 4, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 LT Crew

During the month of March, we put 1,500 miles on our long-term 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. Over those miles, we averaged 17.9 mpg, and the truck's average lifetime mpg stayed the same at 17.4 mpg. However, we also recorded a new lifetime best at 23.1 mpg.

As you'll note, we've finally matched the EPA's estimate for highway fuel economy, though our lifetime average still falls short of the 19 mpg EPA combined rating for our two-wheel-drive Silverado. Here's how the numbers break down.

Worst Fill MPG: 12.5 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 23.1 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 17.4 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 19 combined (16 city/23 highway)
Best Range: 469.2 miles
Current Odometer: 17,615 miles
